Four days were spent at Universal, visiting both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. The new Wizarding World of Harry Potter was quite an attraction. The castle was huge and contained the “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey” ride. I’ve never experienced anything quite like it.
Just making your way through the line inside the castle was an adventure. There were lots of statues, artifacts, dragon skeletons and portraits that spoke to each other and the guests. There was one outdoor section that had some very interesting plants (carnivorous).
Don’s risotto with beef tips was scrumptious. I had Thai style spicy chicken wraps with peanut dipping sauce – yum. The kids enjoyed rice krispie treat sushi for dessert – chopsticks included.
On Friday, I enjoyed afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian. I made my only souvenir purchase of the week at the gift shop next to the Garden View Lounge. It’s a rather different teapot that I’ll post about later.
I’m looking forward to seeing what all my blogging friends have been up to while I was away.
